Flora De­sign­ers of Taupo¯

Taupo & Turangi Weekender - - News -

Last month we were tu­tored by vis­it­ing tu­tor Ros­alie Barr on ‘Eastern In­flu­ence’. Ev­ery­one used a pin holder in a shal­low type con­tainer, be­fore ar­rang­ing an in­ter­est­ing branch, stick, etc, and a few flow­ers and leaves into the pin holder. Some stones, moss, etc, were then used to cover the pin holder and wa­ter added to the de­sign. Although the de­signs were all quite dif­fer­ent they were most at­trac­tive. Joyce Ranger won the Most Pop­u­lar Vote. On Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27, our club is host­ing the Waikato Area Com­pe­ti­tions and De­signer of the Year Com­pe­ti­tion at St Paul’s Union Church. A tal­ented flo­ral de­signer, Les­ley Camp­bell of Hawke’s Bay, will demon­strate in the af­ter­noon, fol­lowed by af­ter­noon tea. The pub­lic are very wel­come to at­tend from 1pm to view all the com­pe­ti­tion de­signs, sales ta­ble and raf­fles be­fore the demon­stra­tion be­gins at 1.30pm. Ad­mis­sion is $15. Our club night is on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 15 at St Paul’s Union Church Hall at 7pm, when our tu­tor Elaine Brig­house will ap­praise our prac­tice de­signs for the com­pe­ti­tions. All wel­come. Non-mem­ber fee: $5. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, please phone Joyce on 377 1433 or Elaine 378 9851.
